High grass and joy.Personal post.

Last month (my, the time flies!) me and my two girl-friends took our respective daughters to a green spot nearby for a product photoshoot. Product in question is one of the ladies` kids clothes line, and pictures from the session will soon appear in my portfolio. Here I wanted to share some of the “by products” of this lovely evening we had because I think those couple of hours we spent together talking, taking photographs and observing our girls enjoying themselves in the high grass meadow were truly special on so many levels.

I am thankful for my little women tribe. I am thankful for my friends who are not only fellow mothers, artists  and businesswomen , but also constant inspiration and true anchor when the going gets rough at times. Thank you ladies.

Lensbaby Blog Circle Month Two.

So it`s another month, and another 5th of it-time for five more lensbaby pictures!

This time I`m showing my younger daughter, Eliza, who accompanies me every Wednesday when I await Nina to finish her ballet class. We hang around the venue, and now that it`s finally warm we don`t sit in the car-instead we walk and soak up the sun in the neighbouring green patches. On that particular Wednesday (yesterday!) it was very sunny, very bright, very glorious in terms of light. And so I embraced it fully with my Sweet 35, not backing away from the rays , because sometimes that`s exactly what is needed.

Voila!

Lensbaby mon amour. B&W part I.

I didn`t want to start this post with the words: ” I love Lensbaby”. But, I do love my lensbaby. From the very first moment I took it out of the box, around 9 months ago. It`s not an easy love, in fact, it`s a very demanding partnership! But in all honesty, if I was to get  rid of the my lenses but one, my Composer Pro + Sweet 35 would be the one to stay. I cannot efficiently express my feelings towards the images it helps me to create, so I`ll let them speak for now….in this post, a selection of monochrome phptpgraphs from the last months, taken with Composer Pro and Sweet 35 optics.

Bubble fun or seeking beauty in the ordinary.

These photographs are 5 months old . I took them in September last year (hard to believe it`s February already!), on a very early morning one day, when the sun was low and the light in abundance. My daughters were still in their pyjamas and found some bubbles to play with in our tiny garden.

Oh, the garden….our garden is everything but  beautiful. Frankly speaking, it`s quite rogue. Small, cluttered, sad and dark. There`s a tool shed crammed in a corner there, a huge wheelie bin in another, laundry lines, some sad rose bushes and a tiny bistro table with two chairs. Hardly any space left for actual people….And yet!  With the right approach, even this visually challenging tiny space can become a great setting for something amazing-amazing like two little girls, playing together in early morning sun. 

I grabbed my camera and decided these moments were worth recording. Because, ultimately, beauty and emotions can be found just about everywhere, anytime.
